EMMA – providing multilingual access to European MOOCs

The European Multiple MOOC Aggregator called EMMA for short, is a 30 month pilot action supported by the European Union.

A new and more effective MOOC model?

Recent literature on MOOCs suggests that many of the lessons taught by decades of e-learning experimentation have not been learned, reflected upon and that learning in an online or blended context is not simply “repackaging” a course or posting course notes online with some video-captured content.Few in the literature argue for instance that better institutional collaboration and synergy and a significant review and better alignment and integration of institutional academic advising, academic support, assessment and eLearning policies are needed, which would enable MOOCs and other

Stanford president offers predictions on a more digital future for higher education @insidehighered

Stanford president offers predictions on a more digital future for higher education @insidehighered | Taking a look at MOOCs | Scoop.it
Sue Beckingham's insight:

"Hennessy advocated for hybrid courses -- based on a relatively small set of top-quality digital lectures, enhanced by simulations. He said he believed not in MOOCs, but in LSOCs, or large selective online courses.

He said, for instance, that introductory courses could be "more compelling" if the best instructors produce courses, and they are enhanced and distributed, with on-campus faculty members acting as in-class coaches, leading group exercises, offering extra help to those who are struggling, and so forth. He said that research already demonstrates that high-quality hybrid courses can improve student learning."
